Jefferies today reiterated a Buy on chemical company Celanese (NYSE: CE) and raised its price target to $54.00 (from $50.00)

"We believe the next move in Celanese shares hinges on either clear delineation of structural improvement initiatives, AEM decoupling from weaker end markets, material progress on TCX , a methanol partnership/buyback deal, or a cyclical recovery in China," said analyst Laurence Alexander.

Despite his bullish view, unless the company announces a significant restructuring initiative, Alexander warned Celanese could stay range-bound in the first half of 2013.
